Primark baby onlookers describe birth drama

2 July 2014 Last updated at 14:53 BST

Crowds gathered around a woman as she gave birth to a girl outside a Primark store in Birmingham city centre.

Onlookers said dozens of people - some of whom filmed as events unfolded on New Street - cheered and showered the new mum with money as she gave birth.

They said the woman had been waving and encouraging people to film her as she was helped into an ambulance.

BBC Midlands Today's Joan Cummins reports from the scene.
